I Met A Saint

Being a firm believer in the omnipresent Lord, I believed all he said – yes every single word! His fan following was huge at that very time, It’s even bigger now and growing like River Rhyne! Couldn’t resist my uncanny habit of asking for an autograph, My words instantly brought a “smile” on the priest-like face. Yes, the first time I saw him smiling then,
Nobody remembered the last time he smiled when!
The words from his mouth were like magic to my ears, His “magical words” continue to reverberate in my thoughts here. Yes, nobody can be God, nor act like him, But there was something special – oh so special in him! His "prophecy" is yet to come true for me,

Veg Momo Recipe With Suji

Do you know steamed stuff is diabetes friendly?

If you are looking for a diabetes recipe and also love momos, then this post is for you.

Momo or steamed dumplings seem to be a hot favorite snacking option among kids these days. Even I like veg momos. I started savoring these steamed dumplings when I shifted to Delhi. Yes, I had never tasted these before. But as I became more and more conscious about health and started watching my intake, we started to make a distance from momos, not because of calories, but since these dumplings use refined flour or all-purpose flour or maida.


No maida means diabetes friendly!

Beans Thoran OPOS Way

Loaded with dietary fiber, green beans or French beans are also known as snap or string beans.
The dark green colored vegetable has lutein, neoxanthin, beta-carotene, and other carotenoids. Other vegetable rich in carotenoids include carrots and tomatoes.

A rich source of antioxidants, French beans boast a good amount of B-vitamins. WHFoods recommends steaming green beans for 5 minutes to retain the maximum number of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients.

Steaming brings out their peak flavor, besides providing moisture to retain their green color and make them tender.

Being rich in omega-3 fatty acids, green beans are touted to have cardiovascular benefits. Though the amount of omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid is not too much, it is still greater than most other sources of the same.
